  • Tasteless CNN Debases Itself by Blasting Kelly for Emotional WH Remarks

    Just when you thought CNN couldn’t cheapen itself any further. On Thursday, CNN Newsroom reacted to a powerful White House statement Chief of Staff and Gen. John Kelly (Ret.) amidst the Gold Star families controversy by noting Kelly’s personal sacrifices before lambasting him for calling out a Democratic member of Congress and attacking the media. Right off the bat, CNN Political Director David Chalian noted that “it's hard to listen to a father tell that story and not have sympathy” before declaring that Kelly’s emotions must be separated “from the White House chief of staff going into the press briefing...

    ....This is, of course, somewhat common fare by this point in the arc of Trump's presidency. Faced this week with storylines he doesn't like -- questions about the Niger attack, controversy over a phone call he placed to the widow of one of the soldiers lost in that attack, Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Capitol Hill facing questions about Russian meddling in the election -- he aims to change the subject via his Twitter feed. And he often does so by lobbing out a conspiracy theory with only the loosest ties to the factual world....

    That great political genius Chris Cillizza of CNN has made a prediction that appears to spell doom for Republicans in the 2018 congressional elections. Okay, perhaps Cillizza did hilariously flop on his prediction of Donald Trump having near zero chance winning the presidency but this time he is armed with polls. Lots of polls to back up his contention that Here's why Republicans are in deep trouble in 2018:

    Democratic Rep. Frederica Wilson shot back at President Trump moments after he claimed he has proof that she "totally fabricated" what he told the widow of a U.S. soldier who died in Niger. "I don't know what kind of proof he could be talking about," Wilson said Wednesday on CNN. "I'm not the only person that was in the car. And I have proof too. This man is a sick man. He's cold-hearted and he feels no pity or sympathy for anyone."

    Did you happen to catch CNN’s latest smear? Anderson Cooper’s show recently featured a “two-part exclusive” that claims Donald Trump’s EPA director had conspired with the CEO of a mining company to “withdraw environmental restrictions” so the company could dig “the largest open pit mine in the world in an extremely sensitive watershed in wild Alaska.” The report was enough to horrify any caring person. CNN showed beautiful pictures of colorful salmon swimming in Bristol Bay, and the reporter intoned dramatically, “EPA staffers were shocked to receive this email obtained exclusively by CNN which says ‘we have been directed by...

    In the course of a rambling interview on CNN this morning, Dem Congresswoman Frederica Wilson repeatedly claimed that she didn’t want to “politicize” the issue of the conversation President Trump had with the widow of a soldier killed in Niger. Right. Wilson would never politicize it. Except . . . she said: Trump lied about the conversation, that given the chance she would have cursed him out on the phone, that Trump doesn’t know how to sympathize and that his actions were “disgraceful.” Oh, and for good measure, Wilson said that Trump “has a brain disorder, and he needs to...

    Anyone who doesn't understand why so many people have been aroused and inspired by Steve Bannon's culture "war talk" should listen to the Paul Ryan interview on "Face the Nation" a few weeks back. It offered a perfect example of what frustrates them about the Republican leadership. Prompted by host John Dickerson on the issue of race relations, the House speaker advised President Donald Trump and other leaders to change their adversarial ways. He said: "I think what matters is that we have to show people that we are an inclusive society that ... we want everyone to succeed. And...

    "What I do take seriously is when he tries to destroy the credibility of the media, an independent press that can gather information that people can compare to the government's version of events and that is what we do. It's as crucial to our democracy as the right to vote, and when people try to undermine that, I think they're undermining the foundations of our democracy."

    As we reported here yesterday, MSNBC devoted a long segment of Joy Reid’s show to a discussion of how the military or congress could “stop” or “constrain” President Trump. Today, it was CNN’s turn, on Reliable Sources, to beat the remove-Trump-from-office drum. And who better to lead the charge than Jennifer Rubin, whom host Brian Stelter, managing to keep a straight face, introduced as a “conservative columnist.” View the video here.

    There is only one way — one! — to finally and forever destroy Hollywood and much of the mainstream media. You have to cut your cable or satellite cord. You have to cancel your pay TV package. The one-legged stool propping up ESPN, CNN, MSNBC, Disney, MTV, and the entire Tinseltown crime syndicate is you paying for cable TV. If you want to know how this scam works, read all about it here.

    CNN anchor Chris Cuomo got in a heated dispute, Friday, with Congressman Jim Jordan over Donald Trump ending ObamaCare subsidies. After asking Jordan for his opinion, Cuomo demanded a more liberal answer: “Jim, why aren't you saying the President is acting like an emperor? And his job is to execute laws that are passed, not write his own and Congress must hold him into account for doing so.” This is rich coming from Cuomo as he previously slammed Trump for ending Obama's DACA action even though it was “legally dubious.” Later in the segment, the Republican schooled Cuomo on ObamaCare:...

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon has privately confided that he believes President Donald Trump only has a 30% chance of completing his full term, a source told Vanity Fair. According to two of Vanity Fair's sources with knowledge of the conversation, Bannon warned Trump several months ago that the biggest threat to his presidency is not impeachment by Congress, but the 25th Amendment -- which could allow his Cabinet to vote to remove him. CNN has been unable to independently confirm these reported conversations. Bannon could not be reached for comment.

    On Tuesday morning, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, the Democratic party's 2016 vice presidential nominee, sat down for an interview on CNN's "New Day." Asked about the allegations of sexual harassment against Harvey Weinstein, the deposed Hollywood mogul, Kaine said: "Any leader should condemn this. These allegations are low-life behavior." By that definition, the last two Democratic presidents as well as the party's 2016 nominee are not leaders. Five days after the New York Times broke the news that Weinstein, the head of Miramax and a major Democratic donor, faced a series of allegations of inappropriate behavior toward women over a...

    Washington (CNN) - President Donald Trump's tweets Sunday morning claiming he denied Sen. Bob Corker's request for an endorsement are false, two sources familiar with the discussions said. Trump told Corker he was going to endorse him the day the Tennessee Republican announced his intention to retire, the sources said. "The President called the senator early last week and asked him to reconsider his decision not to seek re-election and reaffirmed that he would have endorsed him, as he has said many times," one of the sources said.

    CNN’s Chris Cuomo lost his cool on live T.V. after OMB Director Mick Mulvaney said that CNN was spreading false information about President Trump’s response to the hurricane that devastated Puerto Rico. Mulvaney said that mainstream media like CNN are purposely choosing to only show the “bad stuff” rather than report on all of the efforts by the Trump administration to help the people in Puerto Rico who are suffering. Here’s a flashback to the theatrical fake news CNN was pumping out… CNN traveled to Puerto Rico and interviewed San Juan Mayor Cruz wearing a “help us we are dying”...

    (CNN) - President Trump made two comments Thursday in the company of his most senior military leaders. One was a rebuke. The other was a threat. Both were incredibly irresponsible. Let's set the stage a bit first. Every three months all the top US military commanders and service secretaries get together for an event they call the Senior Leaders Conference. They've been doing this since at least the days of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld. It's an opportunity for the secretary of defense to lay out his vision, goals and objectives on issues that cut across many institutional lines. And...
